CMS 2.0 - Building applications that have dynamic structure, not just dynamic content
Form-based web applications, such as CRM systems, registration forms, activity logs, etc., are a fundamental part of the internet. In this workshop, each participant will build a form-based web application in under two hours, using an open source, rapid application development toolkit called Formulize. The web application we'll be building, from scratch, is a record keeping system for a recreational sports league. All the logical structures and business rules of the system can be specified through CMS-like configuration options, so minimal or no programming is required. This technique lets both technical and non-technical staff quickly deploy applications, using a standardized architecture, so it can save time and money on both development and maintenance.
